Hi Alda...here is one that I am doing for dinner tonite, not Mexican,
not Asian, just good and also hot!
2-3	lbs chicken pieces, I use thighs
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1	14oz can artichoke hearts(Castroville is just down the road!)
1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
2	serrano peppers, seeded and chopped
2	tbls all purpose flour
2/3 cup chicken broth
3	tbls dry sherry
1/4 tsp dry rosemary...I use about a tablespoon of fresh chopped

Rinse the chicken pieces and pat dry, then season with salt, freshly
ground pepper and I use Calvin's powder, any hot chile powder, set
aside...in a wide pan melt the butter or marg, add the chicken and brown
all over, remove and put in a shallow 3 qt baking pan, and tuck the
artichoke pieces all around the chicken. Re-heat the frying pan and add
all the mushrooms and the peppers and cook until a little brown, then
throw in the flour, mix around, add the chicken broth and the sherry and
cook until thickened a little, pour over the chicken pieces, add the
rosemary, and put into a 350 F oven for about 30 minutes...this is a
fabulous dish, you will do it again and again, if you like artichokes! 
Enjoy, cheers Doug in BC
